Cl lamps in Ire-view Cross the Gypsy’s palm with silver. . . . The crystal knows all. . . . Ah! it is brightening! ... 1 see four letters . . . no. they are numbers. ... 1 see them more clearly now, . . . one, nine, three, nine—1939. . . . Now the three is fading . . a four takes its place . . . 1949. ... I can now see ten years into the future. You asked concerning the class of ’39. Ah! Yes! . . . The class president, Myron Cupp, is still conducting meetings; he is president of the Interstate Commerce Commission. . I see the vice president of the class, Oliver Siewert, now has a seat in Congress, another step in the ladder toward the presidency. . . . Secretary and treasurer, Ber- nice Gaul, is now “slaying ’em” on the NBC networks. . . . Valedictorian Rae Ma- rie Mongreig is living in Hollywood, California; she is a chief fashion designer at M.G.M. studios, ably taking the place of Adrian. . . . Salutatorian Vera Essig now teaches a class of giggling sub-debs at Vassar. ... 1 see Merrial Bodjack cooking dinner for her hubby on the maid’s day off; she is now one of America’s leading models. . . . Rayella Davis operates a ritzy beauty salon on Fifth Avenue. . . . Ewalt Fausak is the successful manufacturer of “Fausak’s Bouncing Soap.” . . . “He floats through the air with the greatest of ease,” Edwin Geipel, of course, piloting a United Airlines plane. . . . Frank Klackle owns and operates the world’s largest apiary. ... 1 he best seller of the year is “Away With the Breeze,” written by Edna Kornow. . . . The sign at the box office of a New Y’ork theater reads: “Standing Room Only” for the hit production of “The Taming of the Shrew,” starring Anne Ne Baron (Ann Krajacic to you). . . . Margaret Maffei is teaching a speech class at Stevensville High School. ... I see Alma Mischke as Mr. Hughes’ secretary. (He has retired from the teaching profession and is now writing a combination Eco- nomics-Government-History textbook.) . . . America’s current screen idol’s private secretary is Margaret Ann Ott. . . . Junior Pallas is now a big politician. . . . Frank Posch . . . the crystal is beginning to blur—now it is clearer . . . Frank Posch is still the most eligible bachelor in seven counties. ... I see that Walter Raab has bad a setback to his Freshman days and is now writer and publisher of “1,000 Jokes for a Dime. . . . The editor of the New York Times is none other than LaVerne Reimer. . . . Arthur Rochau is now a successful scientific farmer. . . . Irene Siewert owns and manages a cosmetic factory while hubby is at sea. . . . Lenord Siewert op- erates a used-car agency. . . . Ella Schulz is America’s leading cosmetologist. . . . Frieda Schulz is still trying to revive “Jitterbugging.” a popular pastime during her high school years. . . . The scene is beginning to fade . . . but wait ... 1 hear a sweet soprano voice; I recognize it as that of Esther Spitzer who now warbles on a coast-to-coast hook-up. ... 1 hat is all . . . no, wait! 1 see a small group of people laboriously listening to Coach Shearer as he tells of his coaching three state cham- pionship B. B. teams for the 3,428ih time. . . . The scene changes. ... A fireside, an easy chair, and soft music, and gazing into the flickering flames is Mrs. Myers, beloved teacher. She is very pleased with the class of ’39, just as the class had hoped she d be. . . . That is all. . . . The crystal tells me no more. pafft- fiftwn

It has been the habit, custom, and annual practice for ever and ever so long, for the Senior Class in the days preceding its demise to bequeath to the underclassmen its most precious, prized, fantastic, stupendous, inexpli- cable, superannuated, also extempora- neous possessions, provided that certain conditions are minutely upheld upon receiving said possession. These be- longings are not given to classes as a whole, but to individuals who it is be- lieved will uphold the sacred traditions to the very best of their ability. May it be understood that upon re- ceiving these most delinquent, inconse- quential, infrequent, inconsistent en- dowments the recipients will endeavor to uphold to the best of their ability the following conditions: (1) upon en- tering Mr. Shearer’s illustrious domain, to fall quickly and quietly asleep to the best of their ability; (2) on falling over the threshold of Mrs. Myers' sanctum, to continue chewing gum as vigor- ously as possible; (3) to do whatever else their good judgment requests them and that they believe would be in di- rect accordance with our best wishes. Therefore, we declare this to be our last will and testament in the manner following: First, we will and direct that all our just debts and graduation expenses be paid in full. Second, we give, devise, and be- queath: Our section of seats in the assem- bly hall to the Juniors. Merrial Bodjack’s figure to Ruthie Rothermel. Myron Cupp’s athletic ability to jack Dehring. Rayella Davis’ ability to play bas- ketball to Genevieve Jonatzke. Vera Essig’s speedy walk to Mary Dehring. Ewalt Fausak’s physique to Gerald Hass. Bernice Gaul’s giggles to Julia Zelko. Edwin Geipel’s height to Maxwell Elsasser. Will Edna Kornow’s dimples to Evelyn Tot .ke. Ann Krajacic’s lovely tresses to Stella Albright. Frank Klackle’s bees to Joe Krejci. Margaret Maffei’s bashfulness to “Jake" Ott. Alma Mischke’s quietness to Mil- dred Mlynek. Rae Marie Mongreig’s artistic ability to Caroline Bodjack. Margaret Ann Ott’s executive ability to Eleanor Kutz. Junior Pallas’ stubbornness to Frank Cupp. Frank Posch’s mustache to Walter Huebner. Art Rochau’s dark hair to Billy Posch. LaVerne Reimer’s aptitude for mu- sic to Adeline Friesl. Walter Raab’s idleness to Jordan Jung. Irene Siewert’s fingernail polish to Maxine Bujack. Lenord Siewert’s many cars to Ar- nold Schulz. Ollie Siewert’s loquacity to Helmut Pioske. Frieda Schulz’s height to Joyce Kolberg. Esther Spitzer’s and Ella Schulz’s ability to “jitterbug” to the Hopkins Sisters. We hereby appoint Mr. I. M. Dunn of Stevensville, Michigan, adminis- trator of this, our last will and testa- ment. In witness whereof, we hereby set our hand and seal, this eighteenth day of May, in the year one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine. The Senior Class of 1939 In witness whereof, we hereto affix our signatures in the presence of the said Senior Class and of each other, this eighteenth day of May, nineteen hundred and thirty-nine.
